Bobby Saul Gains Membership Into Hampshire Society

SPRINGFIELD, Ohio—Bobby Saul was named to the 2017 National Football Foundation (NFF) Hampshire Society for his accomplishments in the classroom during his four-year career.


The society is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play who each maintained a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better throughout their college career.


A total of 1,091 players from 298 schools qualified for membership in the society's 11th year, both new single-year records in the history of the program.  Qualifications for membership in the NFF Hampshire Honor Society include: Being a starter or a significant contributor in one's last year of eligibility (or a senior who has declared for the NFL Draft) at an NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, Football Championship Subdivision, Division II, Division III or an NAIA college or university; achieving a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout entire course of undergraduate study; and meeting all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.


Saul concluded his career in red and white appearing in 32 games, recording 113 total tackles, with 15.5 of them going for a loss, including eight and-a-half sacks, a forced fumble and an interception. The defensive-lineman from Union, Ohio was also recognized by the North Coast Athletic Conference as a first team defensive selection.
